F is for Frivolity

The cousins .... Tiger is top left, clockwise is Tee's son, then Rex's daughter and son, then Tee's daughter. All jumping together on the trampoline today ...








.... Tiger at the park. How amazing is Tees new camera. See the leaves in the background? The cold is here, and it's name is autumn ....




... the three ratbags. Tee, me and Rex. Tee has asked me to make mention of her scarf ... she knitted it herself. And her leather jacket. Now she will obsessively check the comments.




Such a great day today. Mr TC is down in Sydney doing a course for 2 days. When the cat's away, the mice do play. (Or, the mice do 'f*ck all', as Tee eloquently puts it.)

Rex arrived first yesterday. Within 5 minutes, I had dragged her into the babys room to show off the new pram - she starts screaming. I thought wow, she must really love this pram! Then she points to the HUNTSMAN SPIDER climbing up the wall. I. Hate. Spiders. Severely. Phobic. Rex runs out of the room. I said all of my words in one sentence ..."Pleasedon'tleavemeherealonelikethis...." Rex was like a fireman - she ran into the burning room, grabs me, and hauls me out bravely. Hysterical laughter followed ....

I have to go pick up the takeaway for dinner. The kids got cheese on toast - we get gourmet Japanese. That's a fair deal.

Sounds like you had a great time! I love seeing sisters interact. Since I never had one myself, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to know my daughters will have one another.
So glad you had a great time.
Your sisters are adorable! And her scarf rocks. Tell her I love her rabbit rattle.

BTW- Cheesy theme songs. You do know who wrote most of them in the US back in the 80's: Alan thicke (AKA. Mr Seaver). We should totally try to get him back in business.

Are you sure you three aren't triplets?? You definitely could pass for them.

So, you left the spider alive??? What??? If I'd been there I'd have gotten it for you. Oddly, spiders don't scare me much. Now, if it was a rodent, I'd have been running for the hills.
